St. Maarten – A young and very vibrant group of medical students who will not only provide medical assistance for the local population as well as the rest of the world in the not too distant future have embarked on the beginning of their career after the traditional white coat ceremony.

What was formerly the Montesorri School in Simpson Bay will now house the University of St Eustatius School of Medicine on St Maarten which has at its disposal a high student faculty ratio and a diverse group of faculty staff and administration assistants.

The first term students who are predominantly from the USA and Canada will be spending the next 20 months furthering their studies in their respective fields and while here they will also be striving to be community oriented.

According to Luckie Johnson. Ph.D, Dean of Basic Sciences at the University, the institution of learning was happy to take up residence on St Maarten and the University appreciated the Government of St Maarten for allowing the University of St Eustatius to be relocated here.

Before the donning ceremony which was performed by Dr Felix Holiday, M.D and Kalkidan Bekele, M.D, Holiday had the distinct pleasure of explaining the meaning of the white coat, a tradition which goes back for many years.

After the ceremony was completed, the students were obliged to read the 10 lines of the Declaration of Geneva, 2005. However, this significant ceremony only marks the beginning of an illustrious career in the field of medicine and understanding beginning of basic science.
